Looking For Beautiful Apartments

in Rio de Janeiro? 🌴😍

If you're looking for an apartment in Rio de Janeiro, you've got the right guy!

Hi, my name is Stephane Saint-Denis, and I live between France & Rio de Janeiro since 2014. Our family have a few apartments for rent and sale.  

Our family apartments are fully furnished, have WIFI, bed linens, and toiletries. Our caretaker is also available at any time to help you with any questions or emergencies. And finally we have a 24/7 doorman for your security. 

With us you will never pay 10% commission and cleaning lady fees like on Airbnb. 😎 No hidden fees, promise! 😊

 

Also, here's why the location is so awesome:

The apartments are ideally located at the end of Copacabana, next to Ipanema and 1 min away from the beach. 

Location of the apartments in Copacabana

If you are looking for public transportation, there is the metro 3 mn away (and 1 mn if you walk very fast 😉). Some buses are right at the corner of the street. I personally prefer to take either the metro or a taxi / Uber. 

Markets, banks, currency exchange bureaus, little shops, beach / coconut bars are everywhere in the neighborhood. So you don't need to worry - you have everything you need, and you are 1mn away from the famous Copacabana beach, famous for it's lifestyle, surfers, bikinis and relaxed people.

It was painfully difficult for me to find an apartment. 

I know how complicated it can be to find the perfect place. It happened to me a few years ago when I moved from France to Brazil.

When I moved to Sao Paulo and then then Rio de Janeiro, it was really hard for me to find an apartment. I was working for a french multinational company at the time and I remember how difficult and time-consuming it was to find a suitable apartment. Also the fact that I didn't speak portuguese did not help!

I remember that I was looking for options via Airbnb but I was frustrated that they asked for 10% to 15% commission. Makes a huge difference in the original price if there were no middle men. So I ended up renting from a real estate agency, and still paid 10% commission 😆... 

Yet the apartment was really well located but it did not have air conditioning nor good wifi. I ended up doing connection sharing from my phone to my computer  but that was costly😅. Also, there was no caretaker. So when I had a problem with the local culture, or health check ups, or currency exchange or whatever... well.. I hustled and often was confronted with situations where I had to call a friend (if I had any...), or even hire a translator 😒  

 

So they don't end up in the same situation as I did the first time!

In the past years I fell in love with the country and the culture: the food, the samba, the caipirinha, the language, the beaches and the relaxed lifestyle 🌴😍.

 

I finally speak Portuguese (and also English, French and Spanish) - and I now help people find apartments in Rio de Janeiro, so they don't end up in the same situation as I did the first time! 

The pictures you have just seen, are pictures from the Penthouse, also located next to the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro. 

It can comfortably have 6 people (2 bedrooms with 2 queen size beds and 1 single bed, and 1 suite with 1 king size bed) and also if you use the sofa beds, you can have your 'bigger' family - up to 10 people in total.

The demand sometimes is really high for short term rentals (the sooner you inquire, the better).
